Richard Prime, co-founder and co-CEO at Sonovate, said that winning the award was an incredible honor:

“…especially from an organisation such as Fintech Award Wales devoted to celebrating the growing and talented Welsh fintech community. This recognition highlights the key role Sonovate played in keeping the contract labour market moving despite the economic shock of the crisis, providing significant benefits to an ever-growing pool of contractors and freelancers around the world.”

Sarah Williams-Gardener, CEO at membership body Fintech Wales, said:

“It’s great to be able to recognise Welsh excellence in the fintech industry – we extend a huge congratulations to Sonovate on this achievement and wish them every success as they continue to hit and surpass key milestones. As it stands, Wales is among the top ten clusters producing the UK’s high growth fintechs, according to the much-anticipated Kalifa Review. It’s therefore really exciting to see a Wales-headquartered fintech such as Sonovate scaling and broadening its reach across the world, helping an increasing number of businesses to pay their people on time.”

Sonovate reports that 2020 has been a record-breaking year in terms of funding and revenue, witnessing strong growth in the 20 months since the start of the pandemic.
